I. Executive Summary
The Art Space is a place where artists meet. The Art Space will provide artists with inspiration and the means to create unique works of art, by selling works of art, providing look at a gallery of user art, and at a later date, perhaps also classes. The Art Space aims to provide a place that will inspire and support beginners, professionals, and crafters in the Spokane area. Once it gains some ground and funds, it hopes to sponsor art shows and competitions, art and craft fairs, scholarships for artists to continue their formal education, and other events that are deemed relevant. Once classes are up and running, The Art Space will organize and offer creative workshops and classes in many different techniques and forms of media.
The Art Space will be a specialty store that will offer a large selection of artists’ works of art. Items in our inventory will include oil, acrylic, watercolor, and other painted works, beginner to professional level, sketches, mixed media, and drawings from graphite or colored pencils. In addition to original works, you will be able to purchase prints of various sizes of works you like, still supporting the artists who created them. We hope to provide our customers with a friendly environment, to share art work, ideas, and sell or purchase works both great and small.
As for the classes, once enough funds are gained, classes will commence. Most will be beginner/amateur classes, just enough to get one started in the arts. The purpose of the classes will be to provide artists-to-be with the knowledge and helpful guidance into becoming an artist. After having taken classes, we hope they will choose to remain with us and perhaps help inspire others, continue to nurture their inner artist, go to college with art in mind, etc. We support the arts and our artists.
Crafts have been a growing industry for years and is expected to continue to rise. This is in part...
